There are varying stages of curls that Curlies can have. There are straight Curlies that look like a regular horse and then you can have a Curly with tight long ringlets all over their bodies. My Curly gets pretty Curly in the winter. I can probably get some pictures of him tonight when I go out and feed them just so you can see what he looks like. His mane doesn't seem curly, but I can tell his legs have some wave to them. My Curly mix is straight haired, but hypoallergenic, and he gets soooo fuzzy in winter. It's like his hair decided since it can't curl, it's going to foof out! LoL.
I would definitely be curious to see him next year after better nutrition. See if his coat curls more then it did this winter. It's like his bottom half if curly, but the top half is quarter horse. LoL. When Jasper came back to us, because he was underweight, his curls weren't very good that winter, but they seem to have gotten better over the years so I'm sure good nutrition plays a part it in.
